(David Lee/Tony Lane)

If this ole heart
Was built like a truck
These Rocky ole roads wouldn't be so rough
And if it ever broke down I'd patch it up
If this ole heart was built like a truck


If this ole heart was made like a train
A lot of smoke and steel, wouldn't feel no pain
And it wouldn't look back as it rolled away
If this ole heart was made like a train

But this ole heart is flesh and blood
Gets in trouble when it cares too much
Keeps hangin' on when it ought to give up
On somethin that's passed
I wish it had wheels and I wish it had wings
Cause I could sure use just one of those things
Then this danged ole fallin' out of love wouldn't hurt so bad
But this ole heart ain't made like that

If this ole heart was like an ole tin roof
Beatin' by the rain, wheathered and used
A fresh coat of paint would make it good as new
If this ole heart was like an ole tin roof

But this ole heart is flesh and blood
Gets in trouble when it cares too much
Keeps hangin' on when it ought to give up
On somethin that's passed
I wish it had wheels and I wish it had wings
Cause I could sure use just one of those things
Then this danged ole fallin' out of love wouldn't hurt so bad
But this ole heart ain't made like that
